All the Christmas candy is gone from the supermarket already.
They do this every year. A few days before Christmas they clear the shelves of the Santa-shaped chocolates and peppermint bark to make room for the Valentine’s Day candy. That’s right, it’s not even January yet the shelves are already filled with candy hearts, boxes of chocolate decorated with red bows, and lovey-dovey stuffed animals with candy attached to their paws.
By February 11, all of that Valentine’s Day candy will be gone, replaced with whatever they sell for St. Patrick’s Day. Something green I suppose.
Have a great and safe New Year’s Eve. I’m staying in so I don’t break my quarter century- long streak of staying in on New Year’s Eve.
Here’s to 2017.
